Browns coach Hue Jackson comments on Damarious Randall’s tweet

Hue Jackson, Damarious Randall

Damarious Randall, one of the newest members of the Cleveland Browns, sent out a tweet on Monday night that went viral. Randall, who the Browns acquired from the Green Bay Packers, noted that he would buy a jersey for every person who retweeted his message if the Cavaliers defeat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

As you can see, Randall’s tweet has already surged to 762k retweets, which means he’ll be shelling out quite a bit of dough if the Cavs win a second title (average cost of an NBA jersey is $70).

According to Tim Daniels of Bleacher Report, Randall’s tweet flew past Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin’s tweet about buying dog food for Hurricane Harvey victims as the No. 1 tweet from any NFL player.

During his media availability on Wednesday afternoon, Browns head coach Hue Jackson was asked to comment on Randall’s tweet.

“I think he found out there are a lot of passionate fans in Cleveland,” coach Hue Jackson said, referring to Randall. “In this city, it’s about the Cavaliers and LeBron James.

“I’m not paying one dime,” coach Jackson joked.

As it turns out, Randall is actually a Warriors fan.

Randall, a native of Pensacola, Florida, took a lot of heat from Cavs fans for this post. However, he did note that LeBron James should be this season’s MVP. And, according to a report from ESPN, Randall would have pulled for the Cavs had the Houston Rockets advanced from the Western Conference.

Randall also made it clear that he’ll be in attendance for Games 3 and 4, which are to be held inside Quicken Loans Arena.

Thursday night’s Game 1 matchup between the Cavs and Warriors is slated to tip at 9:00 p.m. EST with ABC aving live broadcast coverage. Will Randall’s wallet take a hit?

“I wanna take my hat off to the Cavs again for going back to the Finals,” coach Jackson said in closing. “We’ll all be pulling for them, every last one of us.”
